Exactly a month after the disaster that struck Beirut, the Parisian-based International Hugues Reiner Choir will perform a concert to pay tribute to Lebanon’s capital city and its people.
Among more than 200 choristers and instrumentalists, the concert will feature Lebanese Soprano Rima Tawil, under the direction of conductor Hugues Reiner, on September 4th in Saint-Sulpice Church, Paris, France.
The program will also include Kyrie by Lebanon’s Ziad Rahbani, arranged by Lebanese composer Yves Matar.
Donations collected during the classical music concert will go directed to Beirut humanitarian aid through “Les valises pour Beyrouth” (Suitcases for Beirut).
“Les valises pour Beyrouth” has been helping collect and provide food, medicine, hygienic supplies, clothes, and more to help the people affected by the explosion.
Essential items are being delivered onboard Air France that has offered its support to the Lebanese people.
